thyssenkrupp local service throughout the life cycle of a mine helps keep things running smoothly and saves costs.

Our products include high-strength high-tech materials for use in extreme situations, innovative machinery, and even turnkey facilities. Our fully mobile crusher is a good example: It makes particularly efficient use of energy, because material is crushed directly at the mine face and transported away on conveyors. This eliminates the need for heavy truck haulage, which reduces operating costs and CO2 emissions.

We are a world-leading supplier of carbon flat steel. Efficient warehousing and logistics systems guarantee rapid availability of our materials. We offer a wide range of services and products from a single source. We have a proven track record of supporting customers in the mining and metals industry in all types of project.

To ensure that you obtain the best possible performance from your plants and machines, we offer comprehensive solutions for servicing our customers along the entire plant life cycle. From spare and wear parts supply and management to workshop and field services, to revamps and outages, as well as consulting and plant management. That is what we call 360° Service.
